Benghazi suspect pleads not guilty
The Libyan militant accused of planning the 2012 Benghazi attack pleaded not guilty, Associated Press reports.
Ahmed Abu Khattala appeared in court for a brief 10-minute hearing in which he said only two words. He said “yes” when asked to swear to tell the truth and replied “no” when asked if he was having problems understanding the proceeding, according to AP.
Khattala is facing charges of conspiracy to provide material support and resources to the terrorists who carried out the September 11, 20012 attack that left the U.S. Ambassador to Libya dead along with three other Americans.
U.S. special forces recently captured Khattala in Libya. The U.S. government is expected to file more charges.
